Favourite Places

27…My favourite place in my city….

I knew instantly in my head where my favourite place is in my city, my head honestly went straight there. I am very lucky in that there are some extremely beautiful beach towns and places and in my city. I am actually organising a room at one of these places for New Years. It’ll be Summer and they have fireworks on the beach we’re going too. We haven’t booked the rooms yet, but when tax time happens. I’m hoping to have enough money to book them (I should). We have some completely gorgeous beach towns, they are probably not as well known as Queensland, but every Summer time (Dec-Feb here) the beach towns are always booked.

Also though not being Queensland is something to be grateful for, because unlike a lot of the other major cities in Australia. You can plan things in the last couple of months. Rather than needing to organise your holidays nearly a year in advance. I went to Sydney for New Years once and my best raved how great it is on New Years…I honestly didn’t find that to be true. It was overcrowded and no space to sit and then trying to get home…It took nearly 3 hours to travel 30 minutes usually, just for a 15 minute firework display on the Sydney Harbor Bridge. That’s ridiculous and there is definitely not enough public toilets in the mean time either.

Swimming with Dolphins

What could be more magical that swimming with Dolphins! Well…That’s what I did this weekend and it was definitely magical!

This is something I think everyone should do! The experience is completely surreal, putting your head into the ocean and watching the Dolphins swim just beneath you is something I will never forget. It was like watching a movie and you realise what their world is…and it is their world! Something I have come to really realise!

It was really like being in a Disney film and I actually had a thought while looking at the Dolphins swimming underneath and thinking someone really did there research into the “Little Mermaid” because that is kind of what it felt like. It did make me wonder if they actually based a lot of Ariel on Dolphins. Watching them swim underneath in the ocean and then come up to be with us, almost felt it was the perfect “Part of their World” song.
